The Long Drop

Stifling this fear of the unknown
outcome of a decision I didn’t and
many others don’t agree. Without
any plan how do they? Have the ability
to lead us.

We will go blindfolded to the scaffold,
look down on the long jump. We can
squint at the waiting drop, wait for the
last push, from friends and neighbours who
have had enough.
